Being Here

It was some shocking news I read yesterday.

I am coming up on my 40th high school reunion in the fall, and of course, there are pages dedicated to it where you can find out the latest news.

A few days ago, I hit on a page and saw a girl that I shared foreign language classes with had passed away.

**sigh**

Yesterday, I read that another classmate passed away, and from reading the information, gathered she must have been battling cancer for a while. What makes it even more sad for me is her husband and I worked together for roughly twenty years. He adored her.

Here I am, semi-retired, three cancers later, writing a blog post on a computer.

Survivor’s guilt? You bet.Oh, I know that I am here for a reason, but there always comes a reality check. That’s why I thank God when I get up in the morning and manage to have two feet on the ground.

Rest in peace, Cheryl and Gloria.
